Watch: “The Voice Of Korea 2020” Crowns Final Winner + Contestants Cover Songs From BTS, EXO, BLACKPINK’s Jennie, And More
On July 10, the final contestants on Mnet’s “The Voice of Korea 2020” performed for the last time to determine the show’s ultimate victor.
“The Voice of Korea 2020” is a show that begins with a blind audition, in which the coaches (Kim Jong Kook, BoA, Sung Si Kyung, Dynamic Duo) sit with their backs to the stage and judge contestants on their voices alone. A coach will press a button to turn around if they determine that they want a contestant to join their team.
The final episode of “The Voice of Korea 2020” featured both the performances from the semi-final and final rounds.
In the semi-finals, on Kim Jong Kook’s team, Jung Yujin (formerly of The Ark) went up against Park Da Eun. Jung Yujin sang Naul’s “You from the Same Time” and Park Da Eun sang BTS’s “Fake Love.”
On Dynamic Duo’s team, Park Chang In went up against Kim Min Kyung. Park Chang In sang Jennie’s “SOLO” and Kim Min Kyung sang miss A’s “Hush.”
On Sung Si Kyung’s team, Kim Ye Ji and Jeon Chul Min battled it out, with Jeon Chul Min singing K.Will’s “Beautiful Moment” and Kim Ye Ji singing Hyukoh’s “TOMBOY.”
On BoA’s team, Lee Sae Bom competed against Kim Ji Hyun (Golden, formerly known as G.Soul), with Lee Sae Bom singing EXO’s “Tempo” and Kim Ji Hyun singing Kim Hyun Chul’s “What’s the Matter.”
Of these eight semi-finalists, four qualified for the next round: Kim Min Kyung, Park Da Eun, Jeon Chul Min, and Kim Ji Hyun.
In the finals, Kim Min Kyung sang Shin Seung Hoon’s “Higher than Me,” while Park Da Eun sang Kim Kwang Seok’s “The Night Alone.” Jeon Chul Min sang BMK’s “When Spring Comes,” and Kim Ji Hyun sang Yoo Jae Ha’s “The Covered Up Road.”
In the end, the viewers picked Kim Ji Hyun through their votes as the final winner of “The Voice of Korea 2020.” As a prize, he won 50 million won (about $41,640) and the opportunity to release an album. BoA said, “I know how hard you worked to get here and you did a good job. Congratulations.”
Kim Ji Hyun said, “I am so, so, grateful. The other vocalists on this show are all amazing. I am thankful to my coach, BoA, and it was an honor to have been able to sing on this stage. To my friends and family, thank you, and I promise I’ll work hard. There are lots of people who are sick and tired and suffering now, so I hope that you will stay strong. Thank you!”
